Here is video of a short part of President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, which he delivered in Oslo, Norway today. In this clip, Obama defended the necessity of war at times, and even came right out and said "a non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler's armies."
President Obama should be commended for making the case for "just war" in front of a European audience that may have been shocked (as shocked as we are) to hear him make that case, and even defend the role of the United States in underpinning post- World War II stability with our military and the "blood" of our men and women in uniform.
